If Shawn Hill (2-3, 3.00 ERA) is going to help the Nationals snap the skid, he'll need more help from the offense. The right-hander has not received a run of support in two home starts this season - including a loss to Florida on April 3 - and only got three in his last start on Sunday while holding Chicago to two runs in six innings of a 4-3, 10-inning defeat.

"I feel bad for those guys. They are going out there and pitching their tails off every day and we are not getting them any runs," Nationals right fielder Austin Kearns said. "They are doing all that they can. When you are giving up one, two, three runs per night, that's not going to get it done, as we have seen. They have been great; we haven't."

Olsen will try to get Florida's 10-game road trip off to a positive start after losing for the first time in four outings Sunday despite a solid performance. The left-hander surrendered two runs - one earned - and four hits over 6 2-3 innings of a 3-1 loss to San Diego.

The Marlins look to get him more support as they attempt to build on a 3-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday, won on a walkoff homer by Josh Willingham .
